Advantage Book Binding Designs Custom Book for John Calipari
The book is a handsome custom hard-cover book bound in black leather. The words “John Calipari” and “Basketball Hall of Fame Class of 2015” are foil-stamped in gold on the cover. The project also included a custom gift box for safe-keeping of this prestigious book. The book was presented to Calipari at the class of 2015 induction ceremony in April. Calipari recently talked about getting inducted into the Basketball Hall of Fame in an interview with Kentucky news station Lex18.
Calipari has been the head coach of men’s basketball at the University of Kentucky since 2009. He has been to the Final Four with Kentucky at 2011, 2012, 2014, and 2015. He led the team to the National Championship in 2012. Calipari has also coached at Kansas and Pittsburgh as an assistant coach, and at Umass and Memphis as head coach. His head coaching record in college basketball is 593-174.
In addition to his college coaching career, Calipari has coached for the New Jersey Nets as head coach, and the Philadelphia 76ers as an assistant. He also coached the Dominican Republic national team in 2011-2012.
